Kokeshi dolls originated in northeastern Japan as wooden toys for children. During the mid 1940s to the mid 1960s they were also produced as souvenirs for tourists. This book introduces traditional kokeshi dolls, their origin and roots, and the different designs endemic to each district of production.
